Lake Buhi– a crater lake of an ancient volcano and the home of tabios or sinarapan- the world’s tiniest freshwater fish. Don’t miss to check the well alligned trees surrounding the volcano. They seem to look as if properly arranged in rows by humans; they are not.
Mt Iriga– locally called Mt. Asog, this volcano lying next to Lake Buhi has unfussy trek route suited for inexperienced climbers. It is much less high than Mt. Isarog but offers an impressive view of Mt Mayon, Mt Isarog and the scenic Lake Buhi from its summit. It even gives a silhouette sight of Catanduanes Island. Start your trek with a jeepney ride from Iriga to Buhi, a boat ride across the lake to an Aeta settlement and inquire for some guides. Rest and prepare for an early morning start the next day. There are not enough trees against the raging heat of the sun so bring a lot of water, as it can be scarce along the way. You may take the same way back or ask your guide for other descent route but be nice to give them extra for the fare back to their village.
